Triathlon

This year, the aim is to encourage as much multi sport participation as possible with the various champions decided by participation in a number of races, rather than specific named races. Essentially any Tri or duathlon can go towards the championships. Here is a list of suggested races that Lostockers might want to enter. We expect two races to be well supported by members, they are the Horwich Tri and the Holcombe Mountain Trial Duathlon
